The Glenda Quilt Pattern (and scrap giveaway)

A while back when I made this pillow for a swap, I had the idea to make a Tennessee Waltz inspired quilt where there were overlapping chains of stars.  I get ideas like this sometimes and they pretty much never work out, but I drafted the pattern in EQ7 and it actually worked.
The Glenda Quilt

Meet The Glenda Quilt, now available on Craftsy and Etsy. She is named after a teacher that I had from 6-8th grade.  Glenda Maxwell is one of the most compassionate, patient, and kookiest people I have ever met.  She took individual interest in all of her students and she had a profound impact on my life.  

For this quilt I used Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids.  When I was planning the colors for this quilt, I kept coming back to Cotton Couture because they have the best shades of blue/greens.  The colors that I ended up using were Bottle, Teal, Celestial, Peacock, Spearmint, Kiwi, Nickel, Lillypad, Fog, and Bright White. 

I had three wonderful testers test out this pattern for me.  
Miranda's Glenda Quilt
Miranda used Bonnie and Camille fabrics on her beautiful quilt.  I love how she used a combination of prints and solids, and how the dark gray stars really pop.
Sally's Glenda Quilt
Sally used one of my favorite color combos for her gorgeous quilt - I love those minty greens and peaches together.

The third pattern tester is having a whopper of a month.  Pat was displaced by the hurricane and then had a death in the family.  I will be showing you her quilt soon.
The Glenda Quilt
I hope you enjoy the pattern.  If you make a version, I would love to see it!  Tag it with the hashtag #theglendaquilt on Instagram or email me a photo.

I have a nice sized pile of scraps leftover from making this quilt and I would love to give them away.  If you are interested, just leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner in the next few days! The winner has been notified, thanks for entering!

  78. Love the quilt and love the colors. And love that youve named it after one of your teachers. They are so important and yet because it is so early in life, people tend to 'forget' them. I would love to get to work with Cotton Couture once so I am in for the give-away. Thank you!

  91. Colour makes such a difference in a quilt doesn't it. This is a lovely pattern. It almost looks like there are curves from a distance. A bunch of scraps would be fabulous since I'm a paper piecer. That's almost exclusively what I make my patterns from.

    Congratulations on another great quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  92. A great quilt design - I love the colours of the first quilt best!

  93. Wow - I love seeing how fabric choices change the quilt - these are ALL stunning but different in small ways!!!

  94. I'm in love with this pattern! A Tennessee Waltz quilt is on my bucket list and I keep wondering what to do with the snowballed block since I'm not an expert quilter and I use a home machine to do it. The shadow stars are just perfect.

    I'd love a chance at those scraps, the colors are awesome.
